The next discussion group of Buddhism from the Ground Up will begin March 15, 2015. We study, discuss and meditate upon the Buddhist concepts and principles presented in a text which we read at home. Anyone interested in learning about Buddhism is welcome – no experience required.
Our next book is “Tibetan Buddhism from the Ground Up: A Practical Approach for Modern Life” by B. Alan Wallace. Unlike other introductions to Tibetan Buddhism, this accessible, enjoyable work doesn’t stop with theory and history, but relates timeless spiritual principles to the pressing issues of modern life, both in terms of our daily experience and our uniquely Western world view.
This highly readable book asks neither unquestioning faith nor blind obedience to abstract concepts or religious beliefs. Rather, it challenges us to question and investigate life’s issues for ourselves in the light of an ancient and effective approach to the sufferings and joys of the human condition.
Lion’s Roar believes that education should nourish and develop our compassion, wisdom, kindness and happiness. All it takes is your curious and open mind to join and learn and practice the Buddha’s teachings.
Please check the calendar for dates, times and location.
